WARNING: This project could be addictive!!!
Do you or you children want to pass out a little different kind of Valentine’s Day card this year? Well here’s the perfect project which serves two purposes; a card and a valentine’s treat!! These can be made for any holiday or as birthday party favors by simply changing the color of the card stock you use.
Let’s Get Started!
4-3/8 x 3-1/4″ piece of Real Red Card Stock and score it along the 4-3/8″ edge at 1-7/8″ and 2-1/2″
a 1-5/8″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White Card Stock
You’ll also need a 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ of Real Red and a few scraps of Whisper White
Once your Real Red is cut and scored, punch out a 1-1/4″ Circle out of a piece of any scrap card stock or paper. I used a piece of Whisper White. Adhere the circle to the front of the Real Red with Dotto or repositionable adhesive. Use the circle as a guide to punch your hole. Line up your punch with the white circle and punch through the Real Red front. Adhere your 1-5/8″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White to the front, covering the punched hole opening. Now turn the card and from the inside, line up your punch with the opening and punch again. You need to punch the hole in this manner, because the punch won’t do two thicknesses of card stock at once.
Take the 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Real Red and run it through the BIG Shot with the Hearts A Flutter Framelits using the scallop heart die. Once cut take a Paper Piercing Tool and pierce a hole in each of the heart scallops. On a scrap of Whisper White, stamp the “For You” and the heart circle from the Mixed Medley Stamp Set in Real Red Ink With the 3/4″ and 1-1/4″ Circle Punches, punch out stamped images.
Place some Sticky Tape on the back of a Cherry flavored Tic-Tac box and stick it on the inside back of the card so the candy part shows through the hole opening. Cut a 12″ piece of 1/8″ Taffeta Real Red Ribbon and wrap it around the card and Tic-Tac box and tie a bow on the side. Adhere the heart over the ribbon and in the center of the heart, with Dimensionals, place the stamped images.
